Recipients can submit their report to their awarding agency outside of www.federalreporting.gov (i.e., by email or fax) if they are unable to report electronically.
Recipients can mark their report as “final” if the project status is complete, no additional jobs will be reported, all or nearly all funds from the award have been expended, and all or nearly all funds from the award have been received.
Recipients can make an adjustment to a report submitted in a prior reporting period (i.e., a report submitted in January, 2011). Grantees should contact FTA with information on the correction and FTA will submit the correction to OMB.
Provide sufficient clarity and detail in narrative descriptions.
Taken in conjunction, entries in the “award description,” and “Quarterly Activities/Project Description for Prime and Subrecipients” fields must provide clear and complete information on the award’s purpose, scope and nature of activities, outcomes, and status of activities.
The information in the “Quarterly Activities/Project Description” field should include information on the accomplishments of the projects funded by the grant.
When reporting payments to subrecipients exceeding $25,000 aggregate multiple payments made to the same subrecipient.
Note that if multiple payments under $25,000 awarded to the same subrecipients exceed $25,000, then this information should be reported in the subrecipient section of the report.
